    Its a Small credit card reader that plugs into the headphone jack, The website said it works with most phones with a microphone pin in the 3.5mm jack, so im assuming that it converts the info on the card to sound that the downloaded app can read. Its a perfect solution for my Small Landscaping Business.

    Works perfect, I used mine for the first time last week. The guy was super impressed too :)

    On a side note, I just got the intuit reader, and it is not working.

    Is this unit that you are talking about, is it portable?

    The Intuit reader is garbage. It didn't work reliably on my Epic, Optimus V, or Warp. In fact, it made me look like a fool in front of a client. The Square reader worked the first time right then and there.

    Confirmed, Received it yesterday and used it. Worked like a Charm. The only thing I need now is a compatible stylus, the finger signing is Fugly.

    What tablets/devices have y'all successfully used with the square reader? I know it requires a headSET jack, not a headPHONE jack - and I'm having a heck of a time figuring out which inexpensive tablets have the appropriate jack. Help? Suggestions? (I need a couple of inexpensive tablets because they will be used in a situation where they could easily "grow legs" and walk away.)

    I've been looking into cheap tablets the past few days and came across this:
    SpeedMax

    The only problem I have with it, is there's nothing else I can find out about it. No info about this device on the forums, can't find it on Ebay or Amazon, so Im not too sure about it.

    Its functional on any 8mm jack such as warp. Whether you want to call it headphone or headset just means # of bands.

    Would love to hear about the Intuit reader more :(
    My squareup.com reader is on the way, but the manual CC entry worked perfect the first time (Square Register app). Charged myself a buck lol, cost me $0.19 :)

    I'm running Noob's very latest ROM tho, on the ZTE Warp. This ROM is kick-ass, btw.

    According to Intuit's website, the warp isn't supported. I sent a request per their instruction....the more they get, the better our chances :)

    I would love to see compatibility on:

    Mfgr: ZTE
    Model: Warp (N860)
    Carrier: Boost Mobile


    Sincerely,
